After months of waiting, including numerous delays, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has finally arrived on Disney+.
Initially, the Marvel series was supposed to kick off the next chapter of the MCU after the Infinity Saga, but the pandemic derailed that plan. Instead, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier now serves as the second entry in the massive Phase 4 slate of the franchise.
Created by Malcolm Spellman, the show reunites Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes for a globetrotting six-hour on-screen adventure, and they will be joined by returning characters like Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter and Daniel Bruhl's Zemo .
At this point, the first episode of the series is the main topic of MCU fans on social media, considering the fact that it has been generating positive reception so far. Now, a new poster has emerged to dial more hype for the show.
A STUNNING LOOK AT THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER
To celebrate the debut of the series, Marvel Studios officially unveiled a brand-new poster for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier , showcasing the core characters of the series. The design was created by SzarkaArt .
A FITTING CELEBRATION FOR THE MCU SERIES' DEBUT
As it is, the poster should serve as a reminder of the grounded nature of the series while also paying tribute to the Captain America franchise. While the first episode didn't feature either Zemo or Sharon, it's safe to say that the two characters will play a much more prominent role down the line, given the spotlight that is being given to them in this image.
The legacy of Captain America is one of the focal points of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier , and it will be interesting to see how the show will do a deep dive into this matter in the coming weeks. The debut episode featured a glimpse of how Cap's shield will tie into the conflict of the series, and it looks like it will ultimately define the heroic transformation of Sam Wilson as the next Star-Spangled hero.
On top of that, the lack of John Walker in the promotional campaign for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier could hint at bigger things to come for the character. Wyatt Russell's US Agent is expected to be a major figure in the core story, and it's only a matter of time before he will eventually be included in one of the posters for the show.
All in all, this latest poster should drum up excitement for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier even more.
